7 Quarters Down, 2 To Go

Well, it's done. I think I did fine- I'm guessing just below the median (B-). I finished reading my notes around midnight last night and stopped bothering to transfer them into my outline around 11 since transferring is really all I was doing at that point. The exam had three fairly straightforward essays. You knew immediately what area of the law they were concerned with and it was just a matter of figuring out how to structure the response and what info and cases to fill in. I found myself staring at the wall and checking email a lot- it wasn't that I had so much extra time, I just wasn't that concerned. I knew I had something to write down and I knew that it would get down before time was called, I just wanted time to speed up and get it over with. I think about how hyped up I used to get for finals and feel rather pathetic. Or smarter. Think of all the energy I used to waste for pretty much the same grade.

And so ends another quarter. I enjoyed International Law and I wish I could have focused on it more. I enjoyed my seminar on Complex Business Transactions and I wish I could have kept my other two classes. I have no idea what I'm taking next quarter, but I'll figure it out before classes start on Jan. 3. Now it's time to catch up on a few emails, pick up Landon for some quality play time, and just relax at home. Oh- and I have two papers to write from past classes that I never completed. Not sure when I'll do those. Anyway, I'm happy this quarter is over and time is moving on.


  1. Glad you made it through the semester. The fact that you were able to complete 2 classes is amazing to me considering everything that has happened. I hope you have a wonderful and very uneventful next two semesters.

  2. Congrats on being done!! Hopefully you can just enjoy some quality time with Landon and JP now that it's just the 3 of you again. Are you staying in Chicago for Christmas?

    BTW, any news on what JP will be doing next year? Just wondering if this whole mess has screwed with his plans.

    Hugs to you and Landon!!

  3. I don't know if it helps any, but I continue to be outraged by this whole situation on your behalf.

    Best of luck with the rest of your finals week and selecting courses for the next round.

    Happy Holiday season, my thoughts will be with you during this time, as they have been since I started reading.

  4. Sounds like it wasn't too bad.

    Moving on... definitely a good thing.
